Service
 
"Don't overthink it" advise patrons of this "iconic" Bayou St. John po' boy shop, because "you can't go wrong" with anything on the "drool" -worthy menu, whether it's the "rave" -about roast-beef version or the "over-the-top" oyster sandwich – just make sure to "grab a handful of napkins" ; "the line moves quickly" , so while you wait to order at the counter, grab a drink from the "friendly" bartenders and ogle the vintage ephemera in this century-old "New Orleans tradition."

This is probably the best Po Boy experience you're going to have. They service is great (though the line is long). The food is good and attracts locals and tourists alike. The core Po Boy options (shrimp, catfish, hot sausage, etc) are always good, and the additional options (try the fried pickles slices) add a fun twist without going into being gimmicky. I'm taking all my out of town visitors here from now on.

I will never understand why people would give this less than 5 stars! Great po boys and made the way they should be. Fresh bread and fresh ingredients. The fried shrimp were loaded to the max so you really can't beat their prices with the large portions. Highly recommend!!!

The quintessential po-boy place. Generous portions, full bar, they have all standards and a bunch of special ones as well. Such as a surf and turf with roast beef and shrimp on it. The only thing that holds this place back is it it's crowded is a long line often. They also offer vegetarian Po-Boys. Overall it's definitely a bucket list place to go when you come to New Orleans, but it's becoming so popular and there are so many other choices around it might be a problem if you don't like waiting.
